PROMOTION favourites Lancaster and Morecambe proved too strong for Knutsford’s men in the only North West League match to survive the weather at the weekend.

The Black Knights lost 3-1 on their travels against opponents who now have a six-points advantage over their closest rivals in the Division Two table.

Knutsford will expect to return to winning ways when ninth-placed Prescot visit the leisure centre this Saturday, push back 1.45pm.
